.d. power and associates predicts that "electric vehicles will remain a very small part of the u.s. market unless automakers can lower prices and demonstrate the economic benefits to consumers." of course, the most expensive part of the electric vehicle is the battery. and that battery costs between $12,000 and $15,000 today. but it is always this way with new technologies. they start out, as you know, really pricy and they come down over time. for example the cost of a cell phone in 1982 was almost $4,000. and it weighed in at over two pounds. but by 1996, the cost was down to just $1,000. what a bargain. fast forward to today and the average phone costs about $200 and if you're a bagg ain shopper, it cab less than that. so similarly, the price of electric cars and that battery is coming down. demand is going up. sales of electric cars have increased by about 180% over last year and smart policies are helping to push even more production. for example, the obama administration implemented a federal program this yea
